Silversea has begun the 12-month countdown until the launch of its next ultra-luxury ship, Silver Moon. The 596-passenger ship will embark on her maiden cruise on 6 August 2020.
Silver Moon will “echo the whispered elegance of the cruise line’s current flagship, Silver Muse, while bringing unprecedented enhancements and elements of innovation,” the cruise line said.
The ship promises to push the boundaries of travel with a pioneering new culinary program, S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste), which will adapt according to the visited destination to unlock immersive culinary experiences for guests. As part of the S.A.L.T. program, three new venues will unlock immersive culinary experiences for guests on Silver Moon.
S.A.L.T. Kitchen will be one of eight restaurants on board Silver Moon, and will be the first large-scale regional restaurant on board a luxury cruise ship, offering an ever-changing menu and a regionally inspired wine list.
S.A.L.T. Lab will enable guests to learn about local ingredients and artisanal techniques, through insightful workshops, tastings and demonstrations.
And, S.A.L.T. Bar will allow guests to sample the most authentic flavours of the destination, through a large selection of regional wines, spirits and other drinks.
Also positioned on Deck 4 restaurants Atlantide and Kaiseki will each undergo an extensive redesign when compared to Silver Muse. Aboard Silver Moon, Atlantide will be enlarged to accommodate up to 230 guests. Minimalist yet sophisticated, the enhanced design of Kaiseki will take inspiration from the best sushi restaurants in the world. Here, guests will witness expert sushi chefs in action, as they prepare fresh sushi and sashimi.
Serving fine French cuisine in an elegant atmosphere, Silversea’s signature restaurant, La Dame, will also enjoy a brand-new design aboard Silver Moon, enlarged to accommodate more than 50 guests. On Deck, La Dame will also offer guests the opportunity to dine under the stars on Silver Moon.
While preserving the acclaimed signature venues and elegant design of Silver Muse, Silver Moon will feature enhanced lounges and public spaces. At the heart of the ship on Deck 5, the Dolce Vita lounge will benefit from a new layout, acting as a sophisticated bar during the daytime and as an enchanting piano bar by night—the perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails.
Positioned on Deck 9, the Connoisseur’s Corner will also be entirely reimagined aboard Silver Moon. In addition to benefitting from a new design, this enticing space will incorporate a new Wintergarden area, which will create a sheltered and inviting area outdoors. In the Connoisseur’s Corner, Silversea’s guests will enjoy a selection of cigars and premium liquors in a sophisticated atmosphere.
In addition to an enhanced pool deck—which will feature steps into the ship’s swimming pool and an enlarged, U-shaped bar area with additional seating—Silver Moon will offer guests the enjoyment of a redesigned Spa and Fitness Centre. The space will incorporate both indoor and outdoor areas, comprising a large thermal area, relaxation area, and gym. Other signature venues will include the Panorama Lounge, the Observation Library, the Venetian Lounge, and the Casino.
“Inspired by the success of our beloved Silver Muse, Silver Moon will raise the bar in ultra-luxury travel, unlocking immersive experiences for our guests in whispered luxury,” says Barbara Muckermann, Silversea’s chief marketing officer. “Incorporating unprecedented concepts, the ship will bring innovation to the industry, while maintaining the small ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience. From our pioneering new S.A.L.T. program to the array of reimagined public spaces, every aspect of the new ship has been thoughtfully designed to enrich our guests’ experiences further still.”
Silver Moon will complete her inaugural voyage between 6 August and 17 August 2020, travelling from Trieste to Rome (Civitavecchia).
